The electric car would detect when you are going down hill and engage a generator to charge the batteries.
This will increase battery charging, which would increase the distance you can travel between charges or in a hybrid it would enable you to use the electric motors longer. Also it will increase resistance when going down hill to maintain a constant speed (safety).
